Phuket pickup crash brings live power cables down in Karon

The accident happened at about 1pm, Capt Chanarong Prakongkue of the Karon Police told The Phuket News.

“The accident was in front of the Phuket Village Resort and Spa. It was just a vehicle crashing into an electricity pylon on the Karon-Patong Rd (Sirirat Rd),” he said.

“The driver of the delivery pickup truck that hit the power pole said another car cut him off. He swerved to avoid a collision, but hit the power pole,” Capt Chanarong explained.

The impact downed several power pylons and brought live power cables down onto the road, with a brand-new white Honda sedan still bearing red dealership licence plates pinned under one of the pylons.

“There were no injuries or deaths in the accident,” Capt Chanarong confirmed.

“Traffic is flowing again normally and workers are on site clearing the damaged power cables and restoring electricity supply now,” he added.

In my opinion, the power poles are sending a strong message to decision-makers that they want to be buried underground the sooner the better to be safer for motorists and nice-looking for the tourists.
